The boys’ relatives have been waiting near the cave in an increasing state of desperation for days. Joy overcame them and they embraced each other as the news that the boys had been found emerged.
“I’m so glad… I want to him to be physically and mentally fit,” said Tinnakorn Boonpiem, whose 12-year-old son Mongkol is among the 13.
